Goodman will hope to make enough of an impression to carve out a role on the Seahawks defense. At this point, the defensive end can be avoided in IDP leagues.
The defensive back has been officially ruled out for Week 8 against the Jaguars after being carted off due to the concussion in Week 7. Brian McCain is expected to start opposite Jason McCourty. Cox may have a chance to return in Week 9, but even that could be considered a long shot at this point.
Shumpert will have to prove he doesn’t have a concussion before he is cleared to play. The shooting guard finished with two points, rebounds, three assists and a block in 14 minutes prior to the injury. J.R. Smith, DeAndre Liggins and Mike Dunleavy would see more minutes if Shumpert has to miss any games.
Unfortunately for Amendola, Chris Hogan appears to have the role usually crafted for the wide receiver. The upside has always been limited for Amendola even if he sprinkles in a couple of big performances. Fantasy owners can continue to avoid this situation unless there is an injury to Hogan or Julian Edelman.
The Dolphins have relied on Jay Ajayi the last two weeks and rightfully so, which means there has been a lack of carries to go around. With the retirement of Arian Foster, Drake may get back into the rotation, but he doesn’t have any fantasy upside. The running back can be avoided in all formats.
Shumpert played 14 minutes before exiting, and if he misses any time, J.R. Smith and Mike Dunleavy figure to reap the benefits of additional minutes. More on Shumpert's status should be known Wednesday.
After the trade of TE A.J. Derby to the Broncos, the Pats signed Gary to the practice squad. Gary comes to the Pats after spending some time on the Vikings practice squad.
